Deathrite Revelation Of Chaos on LP + Download
Not too many bands share the ability to instinctively hit the sweet spot where only the most severe elements of death-metal, grindcore and punk converge. Surely one of the most thrilling acts of this rare breed are Deathrite from Dresden, Germany, who honed their knuckle-dragging savagery for four years now over a series of releases, including their highly praised 2013 effort Into Extinction. Coming from – and sticking to – Germany’s vivid DIY punk scene these four guys have never been afraid to add a huge amount of old school death metal riffage, grindcore speeds and even hints of head-hits-concrete sludgecore villainy into the mix.
The preliminary peak of this malign mixture is Deathrite's newest album Revelation Of Chao. The outcome sounds like a beer and blood soaked death metal show that might very well have happened in a Swedish basement around 1992, including the trademark HM2 sound that hasn’t been presented in such a sordid perfection since Dismember’s Like An Ever Flowing Stream. Yet the song-writing is so bare-bones to the point that Revelation Of Chao” will bring together metalheads, punks and grindcore freaks at ease to destroy themselves in every mosh pit ever. Let the chaos arise.
Deathrite vocalist, Tony on the album’s themes and its recording process: “This time, we had a bit more time in the studio and everyone tried to rip as hard as he could, so we think it’s pretty natural why ‘Revelation of Chaos’ is our heaviest release so far. We chose the title because it fit with every song on the record. It’s kind of an anthem for the next apocalyptic war and we’ve tried to throw you straight into the trench of a bloody battlefield to give you a feeling of devastation and terror!”
Featuring fierce artwork by Mark Riddick (Mutilation Rites, Aborted, Fleshgod Apocalypse), the band’s 10-track Prosthetic Records debut was recorded, mixed and mastered with Jan Oberg in Berlin at Hidden Planet Studio (The Ocean).
